SJ's 11th birthday is in a week, and he's been wanting his first guitar. So, being the proud muso daddy that I am...
Yesh, I'm excited about it, and for him.
I remember my first new guitar... my dad bought it for me when I was about 15-ish, at Farrell's Music Shop in Brookvale. It was a black [with pearl inlays] Ibanez Dreadnought acoustic guitar, that played like a dream. It looked very similar to this one here. Unfortunately it hasn't survived through to these years... the back of the neck, right behind the nut, was irreparably broken about 10 years ago. I was devastated when that guitar died. It was my "Brian" - yes, I have pet names for all my guitars. 'Brian' was my baby... I adored that instrument... such a nice deep clear tone. I wrote lots of songs on that beautiful instrument. I still miss that guitar.
So, my immediate thought upon seeing a black guitar for SJ was of my own first guitar, that my dad bought for me... ahhh, nice memories :)
Peas be with ewe
